of apprenticeships spirit i excepts. he must not abandon the plan that has given us record low interest rates. >> this is not working. today's figures show it is not working. it is his failure that means we -- whatly 1,000,001 peopl this government is pledged to do is everything we can to get our economy moving. that is why we cut corporation tax and why we are reforming the system. this is why we created the zone. i know what he wants. he wants us to change course on reducing our deficit. we would end up with interest rates like portugal and spain and italy. we it would send our economy into a tailspin. >> we want people to get back to work. what the prime minister does not seem to understand that unemployment goes month of. the cost goes up. hear people are in work. teen-age a credible flight for growth. it is not just young people. when was the last time the unemployment reached a level it has today. >> he is wrong. there are 50,000 more men and women than there were at the time of the election. there are half a million more credible jobs. he specifically asked about a credible growth plan
agencies they may look and go, oh, this cloud is outside the u.s. perhaps i don't want to use it for one of my applications, but i can use it for another one. different agencies and even within an agency you have different needs. so to answer the question, for the cloud today i don't think that you're going to see any classifieded information because that's not included in the profile, and it might be a long time before that's coming. you won't see high-risk systems, systems that could endanger an agency if compromised. but there's a lot of low-risk and moderate-risk systems today that can be moved to the cloud. an organization that is involved in cybersecurity or information that's involved in federal government planning, they may decide to either keep it in house or use it in a cloud within the u.s. whereas an organization or a federal agency that's supporting workers all over the globe may want to use a cloud that's all over the globe recognizing they're making a choice, and they can see the risks they're documents. so i think we'll see low and moderate-risk operations moving. >> host

, what you are looking is our own way of working with u.s. aid. these other rapid response teams, developing a picture of who is in need so that we can have a better understanding of situational awareness on the ground and act on that information. it allowed us to address the directed needs of the people of japan. what the people wanted was to return to normal as soon as possible. meaning they wanted to clear the schools. they wanted to address the human needs of the population. which meant showers. it also meant providing use it to help to relieve the tension and the pressure that had built up on people. now, to the consequent management. while the humanitarian assistance operation is in place, we need to get through an understanding of what goes on. in other words, we needed to build a reactor. we needed to understand what was going on inside of the reactor to anticipate our next move. i think that the value of this conversation is to share with you the kinds of questions that come up in the course of a crisis and how we can answer them. for us, this is to get inside of a boili

turn overs there we thought it was time to make a change and give john the opportunity to show us what he could do. >> it was good to play but to be honest i have that sick feeling after a loss. when i went in my initial mind set was a couple scores for me i feel like i played the whole game and in the end we didn't win. >>> i thought rex gross man earned the job out of camp i think they gave rex the opportunity to be the starting quarterback for long term they well have the right to say now let's make a change that is what we will find out this week. >> alison i am curious to hear your critique of john beck's post game attire. >> john beck? >> even rex. >> i have been hard on him. >> yes. >> rexy you got your sexy back. >> not with the game but the shirt >> i liked it very much. >> did you like the trucker hat >> i didn't understand the look but he is making a definite statement not sure what he is saying but i like the fact he is making the statement. >> i think he did look good. >> here is what i think i thought we would run the ball more,. >> oh, tony your serious sports talk. >>
fill us in on that and then move on. >> first, i would like to say, good evening, everyone. i will try to take you back to march 2, but first, i have to begin with when i first understood that the races were separated. i was born in alabama, but i moved to live with my biological aunt and uncle. remember, in the rural area, there are no signs saying " white" and "colored" because it is too difficult, but how i learned about it is in the general store. they sell everything. everything you want to find in the post office, the bus station -- everything has been in the general store. one day, i was standing in line. it was a summer day, and some white kids came in. funny thing about it -- you know their parents' names, but you do not know the children's names because you are not allowed to ieract with white children. they came in, and they were laughing, and the older ones started punching me. one of the little boys -- i do not know, somebody was saying something about my hands. he wanted to see my hands. i just raised them up. i was wondering what they wanted to see my hands for. what hap
of effort. with u.s. aid, it was our clear understanding of how to work closely with the government of japan for the lead federal agency in this case. it was critically important, in this case. they can work the funding issues in ways that the military is not able to. in terms of where we were located, it was not meant to be read, but listed on the right- hand side were all of the ngo's that participated, attempting to galvanize this. it was the role that u.s. aid and the self-defense force played. an example of how to take command and control on the road is a command-and-control unit. we brought this from honolulu so that it would be available in the event that the crisis continued to provide more challenges for leaders. we will close here with the importance of messaging. another critically important element of this. who has the lead for the message? it should be part of the discussion that takes place at your next table top level exercise. messages can be very confusing and you have many different groups involved. u.s. embassy had the lead. to be very clear about that point, as you roll t
. commissioner moran: it does strike me as the easiest to use. how do you go outside of policy and be true to the policy itself? >> i think that is right. i think we could come up with at least as strong man of some general principles and some values related to that, which might include something like public benefit, so that this really stays a surplus question. this is integrated into the property. this is a core value that we hold. there are city ordinances that we need to comply with. the reason we have gone into this space is that there was an executive order. there was a mayor's directive. there are other pieces. cca, i do not know where that will go. but as part of the build up, it may be important to look as part of energy generation. maybe there is a sidebar to our principles and values that say that these values also need to come into play, short of doing too much of the rubric of methodology, but it is something that we are keeping track of, and i would like this to be a framework overall it will not be horribly difficult, but it is true. >> you have given us a lot of information
and there is the argument or discussion about whether or not a person will be allowed to use a credit card. and i do believe we have the responsibility to make sure the customer experience is as good as possible. when you have a system that places the financial burden on the driver for the driver is charged the additional feet, whether it is intended or not, you will have situations where drivers will be forced, or at least will have the pressure to not accept credit cards, and i do worry about that. i do worry about the issue of fairness in terms of what it means to pass this charge on to a driver. we have heard from many people, including management of these companies, how extensive this is an difficult it is to operate a business, and i am mindful of that, but the question remains, if this is expensive, who should bear the burden? and is it correct or right from apollo's -- public policy standpoint to pass this onto the driver? i think that discussion needs further analysis, and i personally believe, also have been taken cabs, that being a cab driver is a very dangerous job. i do not believe people are m

. it proceeded and the stalled and for five days, gave us an awful lot of rain. about a 3, it exceeded the ability to maintain the water. and just when you expect the disaster to be over, it was day three. resources were needed and over 1000 patients needed to be evacuated from three major hospitals within the city. that haven't taught us a great deal about our own dependence upon each other and planning together within the city. as far as international, we have provided teams of doctors, nurses, and others to haiti. we have worked with doctors without borders to mobilize clinical staff and resources. we worked to provide a medical equipment to other countries and devastated by disasters. because of the resource that we use and activate every day, we provide a great deal of resources locally and abroad. the next we are talking about, i wanted to give you an idea of what their resources on a daily basis or an annual basis to the community are. it is a system of 24 hospitals, so we have regions where we can rely on to back up and supply the resources and the people. and knowing that it h

was the identification of the lead federal agency for us. it was u.s. aid. what they provided for us was an avenue for funding. for direct contact with the government of japan. direct contact with the u.s. embassy. what that does, it helps to establish policy and guidance. for those who are looking at ways to now think of these sorts of operations as case studies in which you can test your ideas with the state of california and how you would respond, i would strongly endorsed that you look at policy and guidance. that is something that cannot be assumed away. as you go from the local level to the municipal level, then the state level, and where you plug in with the federal government, this for assumption that we are on the same page and working off the same set of standards is something on which i reach out. to the extent that we were dealing with a contaminated, radiological environment, it was important to have a nuclear regulatory commission. it plugged into the washington, dc environment. the technical expertise that resided in the department of energy. working closely with the government of j
. not my own children. i just show up and berate the officials. i'm glad you're up with us this morning watching on msnbc or listening at sirius xm radio. tweet or e-mail me and let me know who you're doing this early. we'll read the best responses later in the show. the next 30 minutes will be your cram session for this monday, october 17th. a lot to tell you about today, including herman cain's big debut on "meet the press." plus, bill clinton serenaded suggestively by lady gaga with the secretary of state on one side of him and his daughter on the other. good times here. first, let's get to the news here at 5:30 a.m. politicians, activists, celebrities gathering in washington yesterday to mark the official dedication of the martin luther king jr. memorial. the structure is the first on the national mall to honor both a non-president and an african-american. it's located within sight of the lincoln memorial, the spot that king delivered the "i have a dream" speech. speaking at the event, president obama drew a parallel between king's struggle for equality and economic justice and thos
know senator feinstein could not be here, that p is extremell in reminding us that we owe a great debt of gratitude to our armed forces in the city. i'm not to thank our chief protocol officer for welcoming the officials and visitors here as well. i also want to thank captain harnden again for an impressive ship we have here today. you are occupying the space that in a couple years will hold the ships that will raise at the america's cup 34. it will be right here. some of the team ships will be located right here. for now, this is a great occupancy of this particular pier. i look forward to this afternoon when i can see all the equipment located up the stairs as the sun comes shining up. every year, the fleet week is of course paying tribute to the women and men and are proudly serving in our navy and our coastguard and our marines, and is remarkable that in recent years, this week has developed into a much more than just the sight and sound of the parade of ships and the blue angels. the newly established focus on disaster preparedness is an invaluable in addition to our city. since 2
earthquake was an awakening, and i think it took a 9/11 for us to plan differently. and what i mean by that is, hospitals became more and more understanding their own vulnerabilities and they can plan around their own vulnerabilities. the assumptions that hospitals will always be there and always be standing was sort of adopted internally as well. although we have emergency plans, the story to tell, it wasn't as serious as it is now. the planning, i think, has always been good relationships for our agencies and with each other, it is much better now. we are much more sophisticated, detailed, and the resources available are more sophisticated and detailed. >> any other response? >> in terms of response, to enter your question, which typically respond to those disasters directly. i mentioned earlier that we are focused, we know where the systems are located throughout the country. we respond when that equipment as quick as we can. the second one is a little bit different, but just as important. it is our employees. they don't think of themselves as vendors to public safety, but they t
did go through a conditional use change. my bar is a bar. it is a type 40 a license,. i serve tapas. it is a taco truck area and i am selling food, more than i'd thought it would sell. i sell to midnight on weekends and isi bakery and pop up to do business. i think like you know, food keeps the club atmosphere down and keeps the social ambiance and people drink more. i have over 200 signatures. they came into my bart to san my petition. i ask patrons that were there -- it is on the corner of 21st and bryant. it started out with pool ta bles and got cleaned up. it was an after-hours club and i heard of it from san jose. it was always a nightclub. i live across the street and three doors down. everybody knew me as the garage sale lady. i met lots of the neighbors and i live there. i know all the neighbors and they all know me. i am approachable, the come to talk to me about everything. i am now the local noise completely. there is david down the street that is having a party, i get the call. i do my -- i ask him to keep it down. i will get the guard card. i am there all the time. i se
that hurt your daughter that you are not telling us? >> no, no, no. if i thought there was a chance i would say it. no, no. i don't think that alcohol changes a person enough to do something like that. >> reporter: deborah now says she last saw her daughter when she put her to bed at 6:40 p.m., not 10:30 as the family first reported. it was the first time lisa's father jeremy, an electrician, had ever worked an overnight shift making repairs at this kansas city starbucks. when jeremy got home before 4:00 in the morning he said he found the front door unlocked, several lights on and a window screen tampered with. police have tried to recreate how an abductor may have broken into the home through that window. you told us police said you failed a lie detector test. what question or questions did they say you failed? >> they said i failed when they asked me where she was. >> reporter: deborah and jeremy say they refuse to let detectives reinterview lisa's 8 and 5-year-old half-brothers. >> they said they heard noises. i don't know if that was before they went to sleep or after. i have not sat d
of a lot of the particular loopholes, and that would allow us to broaden the base, reduce the overall rate, and this is exactly what the president's bipartisan commission talked about. that could be much more pro growth. >> we talk about this a lot. i feel like i've been hearing this idea of tax reform for a long time. >> oh, yeah. >> it does include lowering corporate taxes to get corporations to hire, because they feel like when they hire one person, it's not just about the salary, it's about the health care benefits and the long-term benefits that person will get, and that costs money. so why haven't we seen an overall reconstruction of the tax code given the people? the bowl simpson agreement came up with that. we keep hearing about it but it doesn't happen. >> i keep my fingers crossed. maybe i'm too hopeful that that's what the committee is going to come up with. maybe they can put us on a path to going to more fundamental reform. we have a very high tax on corporations on capital in the u.s. and that's one of the reasons why we're not getting some of the longer term investment and t

all of that while at the same time celebrating the 100th anniversary of the u.s. navy and all of its flight acrobatics sector. this has got to be an incredible location. i am looking forward to going out there and listening to, very closely, but each one of these leaders will say so clearly as i arrived at the facility and the place where the emergency services were coordinated and how each one of the units, whether it was the fire, or people like our own chief, or whenever it was, dealing with the people that came to see me from the coast guard, or the people that called me from other regions. speaking of coast guard, police officers, whatever, i saw your chief of police and he had less hair than i had. mr. mayor, i saw your chief of police and he had less hair than i had. i trust there is a level of stress that costs you your hair. you should do something about giving us the kind of guidance that will allow other responses and give us the assurance of all can be well as we go about meeting the potential that may be hours, in case of any form of an emergency. i welcome each and ever

>> the right to vote allows us to vote for candidates or party and it is a significant way to have our voice heard. exactly 100 years ago, women were given the vote in california. the battle for women's suffrage was not an easy one. it took more than 70 years. a woman could run for president in new york. >> organizing this conference, basically it modeled itself on a declaration of independence for women. it marked the beginning of the women's equality movement in the united states. >> at that time, women were banned from holding property and voting in elections. >> susan b. anthony dedicated her life to reform. >> suffrage in the middle of the 19th century accomplished one goal, it was diametrically opposed to this idea. >> many feared it would be corrupted by politics. >> women in the 19th century had to convince male voters that having the vote would not change anything. that woman would still be devoted to the home, the family, that they would remain pure and innocent, that having the vote would not corrupt them. >> support gradually grew in state and local campaigns. >> leader
comfortable quote with the of life to minimize the difference between living conditions in the u.s. and conditions in the degette mom. >> how many u.s. soldiers of vietnam? >> guest: 1968 it was about 542,000 americans. >> and how many were told that your do you know? >> off the top of my head i don't know it was the deadliest in vietnam because of the tet offensive and the marking of operations after. so certainly i don't in the book denied the hardship the soldiers endured and the cost of the war. what i'm trying to do is complicate the was ideas what it meant and what that experience was like and also to give some credit to soldiers who don't see their experience as represented in film or television or other representation of the war. >> you have a chart in here sales in vietnam 1915 to 1972. $1,968,325,000,000 is what you have. why do you include this charge? >> one of the things i examine this consumer is some and the role but it's played. military authorities in vietnam recognize that providing goods to soldiers is a way of maintaining a strong moral and that is important bec
to block this bill either. 75% using money to hire teachers and first responders -- 75% support that. three out of four people in this country support that. and 54% of those in your own party support higher taxes on the rich because it's not just the president who's demanding action. this weekend, i marched for jobs and justice in washington. and we made it clear, the american people want action. on monday in this, the capital, they had the audacity to turn down a jobs bill, so if you won't get the jobs bill done in the suite, then we will get the jobs bill done in the street. joining me now is congressman brad miller, democrat from north carolina. he's a member of the house financial services committee, and richard wolf, msnbc political analyst. thank both of you for being here with us. >> thank you. glad to be with you. >> congressman, let me ask you first. will the republicans feel the pressure that the president is bringing on them now? >> they need to. american people know we need jobs. the whole plan would create something like 9.1 million jobs. and north carolina is like most states.
like, please join us for the pledge of allegiance. [pledge of allegiance] >> the approval of the board minutes of the regular board meeting from september 27. thank you. any corrections? roll-call. >> [roll call vote] >> presentation of the superintendent's report. >> that was quick. good evening. i guess i will make it quick. i wanted to share some good news with the public. the good news is that we ended the last year, we closed the budget and ended up with $8 million, a little bit higher than we anticipated, which is really great news for us. not that we want to spend it right away, by 2013, this district will be at a deficit of about $58 million. any money we can save and start putting against that will save a lot of jobs and hopefully keep our district cold. we are excited that it turned out that way. we were trying to save every nickel and dime because we know how bad the situation may get. as most of you already know, the governor and the legislature said that if it reaches $1 billion, below $1 billion in the budget, they do the trigger, which means they cut more to public educa
are around, a lot of us who are in its day today who are familiar with those and to do not get reminded often and not. -- often and not -- often eno ugh. >> are you going to answer nine and 10 and 11? if that is ok, can we take all of these together, and we can vote all at once? i do not know if any other board members had questions. my question is around matching core curriculum, but this is a huge chunk of money. i got not a lot of explanation. >> k-9 represents a representation to continue working with them for a smaller amount of money, but their work focuses on results-oriented activities within schools, so it is working with instructional leadership teams around a data- driven improvement cycle, so they are always looking at student work and performance data, and their work focuses on doing that within schools. we focus on underperforming schools for one -- for quite some time, and we are named an external partner which schools. you will see a breakdown given a more strategic level with partners they are seeing, which includes actual personnel. >> because they have worked so intensely w
>>> hello, i'm j. c. hayward. thanks for being with us. president obama is on a three day bus tour that includes stops in virginia. the first order of business, however, is north carolina. a state where the president narrowly won in the last election. danielle nottingham has more. >> reporter: president obama traveled to asheville, north carolina. the first stop on a three day road trip to push congress to pass his jobs legislation. >> i'll be doing a little bit of talking but mostly, i'll be doing a whole lot of listening. because there doesn't seem to be much listening going on in washington these days. >> if the motion is not agreed to. >> reporter: senate republicans blocked his $447 billion jobs package last week. now the president wants lawmakers to pass legislation in pieces, including a $50 billion infrastructure bill. money that could be used to build a new runway at asheville's airport and create construction jobs. >> we can't do nothing. too many folks are hurting out there to do nothing. >> reporter: the president will board a bus and take his case on the road. making s
and everyone in the company is incurring. the other thing is they came to us and said if you want to be able to pass on the charges like they do everywhere else, here is what they will require. we could no longer be the processor. we have to turn it over to a third-party processor. we have to put in receipt terminals. -- put in rear seat terminals. as far as i% mentioned a minute ago, my understanding is the processing fee itself as between 2.5% to 3%. we also get calls daily, and this is being paid for by the processor, i was overcharged or charge me twice. different than a restaurant. there are added terminals and all of the calves in an expense for the data that is being transmitted to the calves. there is a bill every month for that. there are other expenses that bring it up to a higher peak. president chiu: again, i am trying to think of what your situation is different than a restaurant worker. obviously you're still passing data back and forth. you still have to implement the machinery to make that happen. there's not a capital cost, but it does seem to be unfair to push the cost on t
from health care to use the money for something other than health care. one other thing i want to mention is, obviously, this is an ongoing discussion. there is supervisor campos' legislation in front of the mayor, and we will see what mayor lee is going to do with it. although i am open to changes in the legislation, it is important to note that we will have a federal health care system that will be reformed in two years. the fact of the matter is we have to figure out what to do from now until 2014. i will also mention that federal law -- president obama's legislation, which i absolutely support -- does not apply in many instances to employers under 50 employees. we will still have to figure out that piece. i certainly disagree with the characterization that what we are introducing today is -- what we're introducing today is " to the right of what congress is doing -- is "to the right of what congress is doing." all that said, why don't we move to public comment? i have a number of folks who i know have been waiting here. [reading names] if we could ask folks i
all right. in 2007, the voters approve proposition a, which allowed us to issue debt similar to other city departments -- the puc and airport. it makes sense for us to issue debt because we have projects that require a significant amount of funding initially to get the complete project done, and that we have the ability to pay back those borrowed money is over time. as you know, members of the board, there is -- there are significant repair needs in our system that have not been addressed for a long time because we have not been able to get the full funding for these projects. what we envision is that we issue the first set of bonds to address pretty much our repair needs, both on the muni side and the parking side. our parking garages, which have not had attention to for a number of years, need attention in terms of the infrastructure, and we are -- several of our rail or track rehab signal communication issues need to be addressed. some of the items are the needs driving our system. we really are targeting these bonds to go to our basic repair needs. we are having an indepe
, even at the -- as protests continue. numbers on job abuse in the u.s. >> clearly, it is a major epidemic that we need to get a grip on, so it does not continue to spiral out of control. >> a new theory -- some van gogh did not kill himself, but was shot accidentally -- vincent van gogh did not kill himself, but was shot accidentally by two teenaged boys playing with the gun. welcome to our viewers on pbs in america and around the globe. there are reports of bloodshed in the city of homs in central syria. the relentless protests are remarkable. the bbc investigation has found evidence of injured protesters being shot dead while lying in their hospital beds. this is one of the first journalists to get in to homs. she went in undercover. this is her exclusive report. >> despite the daily death toll, the protests in syria continue, but the tactics have changed. they're held at night to minimize casualties. the protesters called for reform today, as the name of each atrocity and massacre carried out by the assad regime is called out, the crowd called for the death of the president by
. good evening. thank you for being here on this special occasion to celebrate with us. >> latino heritage in san francisco. buenos noches, san francisco. [applause] >> it is and honor to celebrate the achievements and have so many great honorees here tonight. they enhance our economic, educational, and artistic environment in san francisco. we want to thank everyone for their participation, especially in the latino month heritage committee and the consul generals, and all of our presenters who helped represent our community so well. >> i work in the mayor's office of housing and community development. and the community builder for the district 9 and 11. i am presenting tonight. >> i am from the mayor's office of neighborhood services. thank you for being here tonight. it is good to see you. supervisor cohen, thank you for joining us tonight. where would like to present our mayor, mayor edwin m. lee.

sending that child in front of a tv. african american couples are using all their quality time, their leisure time -- they should be spending with their children -- but they are working two jobs for material things. sneakers, designer jeans. you have to and still in your children the value of education. tell them the story of martin luther king, in new york, malcolm x. some day, some time -- and a lot of black people go to church. those ministers in church, i tell them, do not preach about the hereafter, preach about none now. we are losing too many young minds. do not tell me that there are no good african-american doctors. my grandson became a doctor. there is nothing there to stop him -- he is supposed to graduate in april. [laughter] what i am saying is, the american school of public system -- the american public school system, the lower income population is not playing the role they should play. we are not adequately educating these children. the classrooms are too crowded -- that is all over the tv in new york. they blame it all on teachers. i think the youth deserve bett
to stay in power by using force. >> saleh himself held a meeting sunday at his palace with a senior army and police officials. it is not immediately clear when and even if he is prepared to give up any measure of power. the president that he injured opponents were taken to a field hospital to an opposition encampment -- in an opposition echidna. >> we received 25 injured people. four have died from head wounds. >> the violence comes as the united nations security council prepares to discuss the resolution on yen and later this week. james reynolds, bbc news. >> let's take a look at some of the other stories making headlines around the world. for more than four years the arms organization eta has fought a violent campaign in northern spain and southwest france. now a conference being held in spain could pave the way for the basque separatist group to disband. eta is expected to make an announcement this week that could allow the political wing to lead a peaceful -- toward independence. the president urged militants to end the campaign which has claimed more than 800 lives. our reporter jo
for "newsweek" and the daily beast. great to have both of you with us. gloria, since you're out in vegas, why don't you give us the sense, what was the response to ron paul's plan today, which, of course, in addition to the trillion-dollar budget cut in year one also included getting rid of several federal agencies. >> reporter: i think republicans are very interested in hearing what ron paul has to say. east been someone who's been on the scene for quite some time. but when you scratch the surface, erin, you see that he wants to eliminate five cabinet departments. he wants to cut spending back to 2006 levels. but when you look at that, that would mean severe cuts in things like medicaid, children's health insurance programs, and, again, once you look at the details, people are going to start raising questions about it. one other thing, he doesn't touch social security or, guess what, medicare. and those, even to this libertarian, seem to be sort of sacred cows, wouldn't you say, in an election year? >> that's an interesting point. john, what do you think about what gloria's saying, though? y
